Poll cards signal election countdown!
More than 86,000 poll cards will be hand-delivered to every Erewash resident who is on the voting register between Saturday 6 May and Sunday 14 May inclusive.
Delivery of the poll cards is the first key stage in the countdown to the 8 June election, when voters will turn out to elect their MP for the Erewash area in the General Election.
The card gives electors their voter number and details of their polling station - or it will confirm details for those residents who have requested a postal vote.
Residents who want to check that they are registered to vote in Erewash can fill in a form online that will be responded to within one working day by the council’s elections team. Visit www.erewash.gov.uk and click on the ‘Your Council’ tab and follow the ‘elections’ link.
Residents who know they still need to register to vote can do so easily and quickly online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote before the deadline of Monday 22 May.
Voters wanting postal or proxy votes should note the following deadlines:
• 5pm, Tuesday 23 May - for new postal vote and postal proxy applications
• 5pm, Wednesday 31 May - new applications to vote by proxy
